did you plug in both the SATA power and the SATA cable? If so is it recognized in your BIOS? If both the power and SATA are plugged in, and the BIOS does not recognize it, then chances are it is defective and needs returned. If not, we will go from there.

I had both the cables plugged in.
sounds like it might be defective.

I know the cables and the motherboard are good, because i just had a dvd drive plugged into them.
